hi, im a first time mum with a week old baby(yep 1week today)
ive been told that my bub isnt putting enough weight, isnt latching properly and is causing my nippels damage that could be unfixable if i dont fix the problem now. my midwifes solution was i have to do a strict 3 hour feed of 50mills.
and express it, feeding her once from the boob then the next froma bottel so i know shes getting the needed 50 mls
i have to do this 24/7 waking her all the time.
which is quite difficult for me when shes only just gone to sleep and i then need to feed her.
im also running low on milk and struggeling to get the required 50 mls
does anyone have any hints or tis to help
this is very stressfull time at the moment and im lost at what to do, i dont like bottel feeding her, i want it to be all natural
